For the latest news, events and expert advice.
I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity the share my nutritional knowledge and expertise far beyond the confines of my Harley Street clinic in the form my first book - Re-Nourish: The Definitive Guide to Optimum Nutrition. Ahead of its release in December 2017, here is my book preview.
Amidst an overwhelming wellness revolution that has given rise to an all or nothing approach, I feel privileged to be a part of the growing movement demanding qualified experts as the authoritative voices for our nutrition and health. With an evidence-based understanding of what nutrition really means to your mind and body, Re-Nourish will transform your relationship with food and expertly guide you how to eat like a Nutritionist.
MY NUTRITIONAL ETHOS
My ethos is to empower everyone to embrace a healthy way of living through the food you enjoy and the life you lead. My vision is for food to always be seen as a positive aspect of life, offering enjoyment, fuel, medicine and happiness. You needn’t be worried about hard to commit to and complicated plans, I am of the firm belief that getting back to basics and keeping nutrition simple is the easiest way to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Eating well really is simple and the key to good health isn't hiding in a fad diet or a restrictive regime. You won't find it, as if by magic, at the bottom of a pack of chia seeds or after a juice cleanse either. Whatever anyone tells you, optimum nutrition is ultimately about eating with pleasure and without shame, and Re-Nourish will help you find your own unique, sustainable route to achieving it.
As well as being an ultimate guide to nutrition, Re-Nourish has a 7 day reset plan, 40 simple nutritious recipes with supportive resources including:
Mindful eating techniques • Weight management hacks • Balanced food diaries • Portion guidelines • Nutrition myths debunked • Most popular FAQs in clinic
WHY I HAVE WRITTEN A BOOK?
Health professionals by virtue of our relationship with clients owe a duty of care. However, with an ever increasing number of self-proclaimed health gurus born online whose nutritional qualification is nothing more than a lifetime of eating, we must fight the culture of celebrities emerging as authorities on nutrition and health. Everyone is of course entitled to his or her own opinion although denouncing proven science isn’t usually considered the done thing.
Self-proclaimed health gurus are doing nothing wrong by encouraging healthy eating, yet with their immeasurable influence, surely there is a responsibility to ground their promises in evidence. All sharing unique definitions of healthy, they seem to offer a similar trend of restriction and eliminating whole food groups. You’ll rarely find mention of a nutritional degree, which teaches the evidence-based biochemistry, immunology, pathophysiology and psychology required to dictate what someone should and shouldn’t be eating. Evidence-based means scientifically proven with studies suggesting whether something works or not, and whether it could do any harm. A deep lack of understanding from self-appointed health gurus has only served to encourage impressionable teenagers and young adults to adopt unsustainable and dangerous dietary regimes.
Words cannot express how grateful I am to all those who have supported me in my career so far. As a professional soprano, I had once thought I would provide pleasure only to your ears. Although, with nothing more important than what we eat, I am now thrilled to play a role in securing your health.
